Whether you’re remodeling your bathroom or the kitchen pipes have sprung a leak, you want to make sure you choose a plumber who’s going to do the job right the first time. We at Indy Renovation hold our plumbers to high standards, so we encourage you to look for the following signs of a good plumber.


1. Qualifications

Before hiring a plumber, be sure to ask about credentials. Only plumbing professionals are licensed and certified. These qualifications indicate that the plumber has been through training and is approved as a licensed professional. At Indy Renovation, our plumbers are licensed, insured, and bonded.

2. Solid Reputation

Have you asked friends or family members about the plumbing company you’re considering? Pay attention to people you trust who have had first-hand experiences—both good and bad—with a particular plumber. You can also check out service reviews sites or read customer reviews.

3. Customer Service

A plumbing professional should call you back or respond to online requests within a reasonable amount of time. Professionalism is key! When you’re interacting with a particular company, pay attention to how they treat you and their level of customer service as well.

4. Specializations

Some plumbers specialize in certain types of repairs or remodeling. This isn’t necessarily an indicator of a quality plumber—unless that plumber is well known in a specific field. However, specializing often gives you confidence in the project or repair you need. So for example, if you’re interested in bathroom remodeling, see whether you can find a professional plumber who specializes in that field. However, if you simply need to repair a leaky pipe, then a general plumber may be just fine.

5. Awards

Check to see whether the plumbing company has been the recipient of any awards. You may decide to hire that “plumber of the year” to make sure your plumbing issues are resolved or that new bathtub is installed with excellence in mind.
